Default xbox points & GFWL: same thing?

Are xbox point cards the same as points you would enter into the GFWL system to redeem for games on the pc?
I'm asking because my GFWL account is my old hotmail account with a US address, so I can't add a credit card to it. But if I bought a point card retail, I could add it and get anything on the GFWL store then, could I not?

Looks like it as my points that I have from Xbox Live is showing up in the GFWL Marketplace and it does have an option to use MS points instead of $.
